A bloom out of the blue


Yesterday, I discovered a tiny budding bloom growing out randomly among a pot of my bamboo plant at the outside of my main door. I love to find budding plants/flowers which are suddenly blooming among plants. Growth signifies an auspicious new beginning of sorts.

Quoting Lissa Coffey: 
Our perception tends to be that growth is hard, that it is a struggle, that it is work.  But the truth is that we are only making it hard on ourselves.  We cling to the past, try to control our futures.  Are we willing to get out of our own way and just let it be?  It could be so simple! Look at the flower.  Learn from the flower.  We can bloom just as easily.

If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change. - The Buddha
